A friend of mine got a horse from a rescue out of state.... It was told to her to be a Missouri Fox Trotter.. the only experience I have had much with is the Tennessee Walker... What differences can I tell about the breeds etc... Do you "park" a FT? What kind of bit do you use on a FT? I rode it and it didn't feel much different from a TW but I am thinking it was low in wieght and just getting back into service after a layoff.. that may have made a difference and that we were using a snaffle bit. Does one use and elevator bit??? I would like much information on this breed by ppl who know..... I am a great guesser and I am up a stump here.
